Attleboro YMCA School of Dance

Location: Pleasant Street Branch

The Attleboro YMCA School of Dance offers instruction in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical and acro, all within a nurturing, supportive environment at the Pleasant Street Branch.

Understanding that dance is more than just learning the steps, our instructors teach dance as a powerful way for youth to express themselves, to gain confidence in their abilities, and to stay active and healthy, too.
